Canada’s Prime Minister recently suggested that we were not experiencing any Inflation in the country. How wrong could he be?
On November 13, my son and I dined at the Qualicum Beach Café. It was excellent food and service. The Seafood Gnocchi was $22. The Tenderloin Steak was $34.00, Not bad.
Move ahead 4 weeks to December 11. I was treated to dinner at the same restaurant by old friends from Victoria. I had the Seafood Gnocchi again but this time it was $34.00. a 50% increase. My friend ordered the steak and it was now $45.00. That is a 32% increase. In a month!
Maybe its just me but I think that is definitely inflation.
